4Provisional fixation of the radial styloid

Provisional K-wire fixation

Insert a K-wire through the most distal point of the tip of the radial styloid to hold the large radial styloid fragment provisionally.

Add a second K-wire, inserted parallel to the radial joint surface, to hold the reduction of the disimpacted articular fragments. The K-Wire should not interfere with the placement of the radial column plate.

Confirm using image intensification.
